RGPV Engineering Chemistry syllabus of B.E first year

The Engineering Chemistry is common for both the groups A & B.

The theory is allotted a maximum marks of 100, out of which 70 marks is from the end semester.

And 20 marks for mid semester. The mid semester marks are an average of 2 mid sem tests. The rest 10 marks are kept for the internal quiz/assesments given by the college.

The practical is for 50 marks out of which 30 marks is from end sem , 10 marks is from assignment sessional and 10 from the lab work sessional.

The syllabus is as follows:

Unit I
